A05 - The Cooperative Creation of User Autonomy in the Context of the Ageing Society
The subproject aims at the ethnographic investigation and participatory design of autonomy-promoting media infrastructures for aging societies. The objects of research are practices of media appropriation and media design for and with older people, their relatives, volunteers and professionals in care and medicine.
In the first project phase, the focus was on fundamental socio-technical aspects of the cooperative design of appropriation infrastructures intertwined with media practices. In the second project phase, the initial research questions will be transferred to community-based co-production and appropriation aspects of caring communities, in which new forms of cooperative care and support will be developed. In collaborations with local Swiss caring community initiatives, design conditions are explored in a participatory bottom-up process, and analog and digital media are cooperatively designed and developed. Comparatively, community-based initiatives for the care and support of older adults in Germany will be investigated and media infrastructures will be developed that strengthen cooperative relationships and promote user autonomy.
